Supporting a Culture of Innovation

Having an innovative culture – an environment where employees have the confidence and freedom to take risks, collaborate and leverage the strength of their team, and bring breakthrough products and services to the market – is a top priority for many business leaders.  However, knowing how to design, develop and nurture this rare type of culture can be confusing and at times, overwhelming.

This workshop will help you identify the key ingredients required to make your workplace innovative, and equips you with the skill necessary to move your team forward in realizing this competitive advantage.

Learning Elements

The workshop will analyze Innovation Culture through these lenses:

  • Shifting Mindsets – Continually challenging traditional mindsets and paradigms is essential in an innovative culture.
  • Innovation and Teams – Understanding your team and their personalities will help you maximize your team’s collaborative potential.
  • Leveraging Change – Change is scary. Knowing how change impacts each of your colleagues will help your team navigate it in a healthy way.
  • Engagement and Motivation – Once innovation is a part of your culture, managing the performance of these intrapreneurs becomes a constant challenge.
